Engineer’s note: An even more important factor than high resolution.

Engineer's note: You may be wondering why we compiled major songs from past generations?
tumblr_o3b6ucpotn1v9ew94o1_1280 Drum Tree can be used in 44.1kHz or 48kHz, but we recommend playing it in 96kHz. It's much better without the sampler's automatic sample rate converter!
premier_studio800 Mastered @ PREMIER Mastering Studio. Let the sun shine inspiration down on you, as you devote yourself to creating that great song.
tumblr_o3wqqgypmj1v9ew94o1_1200 Every sound was treated with analog gear by a dedicated sound engineer with over 15 years of experience in the business. Unless you have a very particular sound, we recommend not using any plugins.
Lavry Gold AD122-96I didn’t want to intentionally create poor quality sound just to mimic the recordings of the past, rather I mixed classic recording methods with the 21st century using the best equipment available. I used multiple Lavry AD122-96 for not just mastering, but also recording.
Western Electric TubesOne example of a method I implemented to add a sweet and smooth flavor to the recording was the use of an original custom box of Western Electric tubes for some of the vintage kits. It is one of my favorite pieces of gear.
Cymbal on SnareIncluded are multiple snares sounds, snares with tambourines and cymbals, and plenty of brush work and textures.

Simple, Easy, Fast

The Various options to help you produce rich sounds, full of human expression with simple midi.

Sustain pedal kick mode

Sustain pedal kick mode allows you to hit kicks velocity at 100 (C1) using your foot with piano pedal, like a drummer.

Cycle Round Robin

Each key has plenty of sample layers (max 54 layers). Every key has 2 cycle round robins alternating between right and left hand.

Cute humanizing option

The velocity randomizer is intelligently distributed and expands into a maximum of 8 round robins in the direction the creator wants.

Therefore, usually the snare and kick maintain perfect results, even if the velocity always stays at 100. No Joke.

Roll Activation Switch

Using the piano pedal allows you to hold a sextuplet note. Sextuplet notes and 32nd note rolls can also be achieved through A0 and B0 key switches.

This is a very useful feature that gives you great creativity, such as introducing snare ghost notes, cymbal rolls and double kick which can be difficult to do manually.
Tempo, accent, and humanity are all adjustable. It will follow the tempo of your host while it is running.

Checking Results Easily with "Play Demo"

Playing the MIDI demo feature helps you to see the difference of your edit in real time. You can also register your own midi preset for demo by simply putting it in the "Patterns folder."

The Cymbal Mute option

This option allows you to mute all cymbals with the G0 key.
